IT's a BOY AND a GIRL!!!
Yes folks your read correctly. We are soon leaving to bring home Elias and we will also bring home our precious Emma. We have known we were going back to China at some point for a daughter and Paige has prayed faithfully for 3 years for her sister Emma and we have found our precious Emma!!!!!!!!!!
Emma JUST turned 6 years old on December 27th 2012. She is Deaf and living in Northern China. She is a cutie pie! See for yourself!!!
Please pray for us as we embark on this journey. We are still short funds and awaiting results of a possible loan and a possible grant which we are in need of and need to get them quickly. Praying that they both come through. We have applied for all the grants we could, held every fundraiser we could, sold everything we could. Now we just have to trust and pray as it gets down to the wire to travel.
Please Pray for our children here as we leave them behind to go bring home their new brother and sister, it is not easy to stay home while your parents travel thousands of miles away to bring home new siblings 2 weeks later. Pray for our trip that we stay healthy (we both are not healthy right now) and that we have smooth flights. Please pray for a smooth meeting of Emma and then flight to Guangzhou and a smooth meeting of Elias... Pray for Tom and I as we head to Harbin China to brave the 35 -50 below temperatures there to get Emma and then head to 65 degrees in Guangzhou. Pray for a safe flight home. Pray for the adjustment of our family as we go from a family of 6 to a family of 8. We are beyond excited!!!!
